Ophthalmic Devices Market Overview:

The global ophthalmic devices market size was valued at $53,428.8 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $66,719.3 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2027.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medical science that deals with the structure, function, and various eye diseases. Ophthalmic devices are medical equipment designed for diagnosis, surgery, and vision correction. These devices gain increased importance and adoption due to high prevalence of various ophthalmic diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, and other vision-related issues. 


Increase in prevalence of ophthalmic diseases such as cataract and glaucoma is a key factor that significantly drives the growth of the global ophthalmic devices market. In addition, surge in penetration of digital devices, including laptops, smartphones, and computers, e-readers; rapid technological advancements such as introduction of intraocular lenses (IOLs); and increase in focus on customer training and education among eye care professionals regarding eye diseases and associated complications notably contribute toward the growth of the global market. Furthermore, increase in R&D activities for novel devices development related to vision error and rise in awareness related to devices used in the field of ophthalmology are expected to propel the market growth. However, low awareness about eye-related diseases and dearth of skilled professionals are expected to hamper the growth of the market. On the contrary, the emerging countries such as China and India possess high growth potential, owing to the improving healthcare infrastructure in these countries.

The emergence of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has created a major international public health challenge. This has impacted all sectors, disrupting the supply chain and creating a shortage of supplies. As the government has imposed lockdown, ophthalmology surgeries have been postponed. This is attributed to the fact that ophthalmologists are at high risk, considering the proximity to patients when diagnosing patients. Furthermore, the government has imposed guidelines for practice such as the use of teleophthalmology services for patients who require urgent follow-up.

Depending on product function, the report segments the global ophthalmic devices market into ophthalmic surgical devices, diagnostic devices, and vision care devices. The ophthalmic surgical devices segment is further categorized into refractive error surgical devices, glaucoma surgical devices, cataract surgical devices, and vitreoretinal surgical devices. The cataract surgery devices segment garnered the largest share in ophthalmic surgical devices market in 2019, owing to increase in prevalence of cataract each year, which resulted in increase in number of surgeries.

The global ophthalmic diagnostic devices segment is subdivided into refractors, corneal topography systems, retinal ultrasound systems, fundus camera, ophthalmoscopes, optical coherence tomography systems, perimeters, slit lamps, and tonometer. The optical coherence tomography systems (OCT) dominates the market in 2019, and is expected to continue the trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to extensive use of optical coherence tomography systems in drug discovery and their technological benefits such as ability to visualize in-depth structures of the eye, surface tissue, and vascular systems.

The vision care devices segment is bifurcated into contact lenses and spectacle lenses. The contact lenses segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of 3.9% from 2020 to 2027. This is attributed to increase in preference for contact lenses over prescription eyeglasses, due to changes in lifestyle and increase in demand for innovative lenses.

Region wise, the ophthalmic devices market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The North America ophthalmic devices market accounted for the largest share in 2019; however, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to register the highest CAGR of 4.6% throughout the forecast period. According to the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention, diabetic retinopathy is expected to account for major cause of blindness in the U.S. From 2010 to 2050, the number of Americans with diabetic retinopathy is expected to nearly double from 7.7 million to 14.6 million. Glaucoma further contributes toward the loss of vision and blindness.
